Ideas wanted

Sooo, I am having a bit of writers block at the moment and can’t think of anything to write about presently. When I get like this I turned to you for your suggestions. What would you like me to write about for tomorrow’s post? Give me your suggestions. The topics I normally write about are :

Anime Talk – Anything anime ( if I know about it anyway ), not so much on Manga as I don’t read it but if I find something interesting I will discuss it.

Bad Super Costumes – pretty self-explanatory, if there is a costume in comics, super movies, heck even anime and manga that I think is bad it gets discussed here, though I haven’t done one of these in a long long time.

Poll Position – Basically I pick a subject like what Spiderman costume is better, or who would win in a fight between X and Y and put up a poll for you to vote on. Again I haven’t done one of these in a long while.

Kaldath’s Corner – I write about any old thing that piques my interest that doesn’t fall into one of the categories above.


So as I said I can’t come up with an idea to write about this week so make me a suggestion and hopefully one of them will break this writers block. If not I apologize in advance for not writing anything of interest this week!

Creators Club Poster 2015

(open in new tab to enbiggen)

download instruction links: Cover, wallpaper (warning clicking on characters in the poster/ wallpaper after following these links will result in rapid explosion of your skull, please make sure to wear a helmet before attempting. Oh and make sure you download the Zip file containing all the covers).

I have to say, MadJack seriously knocked this one not only out of the park, but possibly into orbit. Show him much love in the comments people. Also, I have to give a big hand to everyone who got themselves on the poster, everyones work looks incredible. Sorry that a few of you had to die during the creation of the poster, but just know that your sacrifice was not in vain and you shall be avenged.

We will of course be doing another one next year, so long as someone is brave enough to try and follow this, so if you didn’t make it on to this years poster, make sure you’re here next year.

But with that, once again thanks to MadJack for his work, and JR out.

Character Design Contest ♯109- Aquatic

For this weeks challenge, I want you guys to create something with an underwater theme. It can be something that lives underwater, something that was designed to go underwater or just an underwater scene. Hopefully, you have enough scope here for some excellent creations, so lets sea them. Sorry, bad pun.

As per usual, no limits on entries this week and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges that I am hosting: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warnings. Only post pictures and images that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

Character Design Contest ♯108 (Be Romantic) Poll

Character Design Contest ♯107 (Vehicles) Winner

The turn out for this weeks poll wasn’t exactly the highest we’ve ever had. In fact it’s the lowest since last July. However, despite this, one person did manage to accrue nearly 50% of the vote and get almost twice the number of votes as his nearest competition. And that person was Stulte for his Daidalos Yacht. Congrats Stulte and thanks to all of you who entered.

107 Stulte- Daidalos-Yacht

Ah, young love….


No COTW This Week

Sorry guys, I just haven’t had the time to do it today. And it’s the one post I can’t write up earlier and schedule to post (well, except the CDC polls and winners). So how about instead, you guys say what your favourite Heromachine creations have been this week in the comments below.

Open Critique Day #13

Oh look. It’s OCD #13 on Friday the 13th. Just an observation.

As for how this goes, you post a work of yours, finished or WIP (aka work in process, for those who are new to abbreviations), and then others give you critiques on your work.  I do not mind if you post the occasional non-HM picture or piece of writing. Just make sure that you only post pictures that are your own design and not any that copyrighted or based off of copyrighted characters. 

Also, again, if you post a work, it is highly recommended that you also give someone else a critique.
